The Nebraska Double R Ranch has some terrific on-site fishing - including from private lakes!
There are some mighty Northern Pike that may offer a challenging workout! The Large Mouth Bass are respectable contenders along with the Blue Gill and Golden Perch. The fishing is a "Requested, Catch and Release" program with the exception of the Blue Gill. Your thoughtfulness in complying with the program will help to encourage others to do the same and assure there will always be good fishing in this special place.
The Marsh Lake is so good for the folks who love to fish. It is an unpolluted, peaceful, secluded, spring-fed, private Nebraska Sandhill lake. There is no additional charge for the fishing. The fishing is outstanding in the spring. There are quite a few groups make this an annual fishing trip which speaks for itself.
Merritt Reservoir and the Nebraska State Refuge Lakes are located about 25 miles north of the ranch. Here is more info:
- Merritt Reservoir State Recreation Area
- Merritt Trading Post Resort
- Valentine National Wildlife Refuge
Ice fishing is available generally late November-February, depending on the thickness of the ice. Be sure to call for ice conditions!
